So Friday evening we celebrated two of my friends' birthday by all going to their house and having a get together. On Saturday it was a bit rainy so we didn't go out anywhere. It was Cinco de Mayo so that night we made nachos. Nobody here celebrates Cinco de Mayo or even knows what it means so only the other Americans and Canadians were celebrating. We walked around the grocery store for 10 minutes trying to find queso dip and could not find any! Most of the taco ingredients are in the international aisle, so it is weird how different it is. Sunday we took the train into the city and went to Harbour Town. It is the pretty much the outlet mall, even though their "cheap" is like our normal prices. They did have some pretty good deals compared to the other shops we have been at. After we went into the city and walked around and ate. Monday we were supposed to have an excursion for Australian Studies but it got postponed so we had a lecture. In class we watched the Australian movie Red Hill. It's been pretty rainy here and has really chilled down. It only got to 70 degrees today but was really windy. It is currently 60 degrees at 8:00 pm so it would be pretty chilly to go outside. Well hope you are enjoying my posts and good luck to everyone at UMD taking finals this week!
